I specialize in working with teens & adults experiencing difficulties with stress/crisis related problems. Have you experienced a major crisis, loss, change, or are feeling overwhelmed by life? Coping with stress & crisis can have a significant impact on our mood, behavior, day-to-day functioning, and overall sense of well-being. Whether you are seeking therapy for the first time, or returning to therapy, I believe finding a therapist you feel comfortable with is most important. I offer a free 30 min phone consultation, for you to get to know me, ask questions, & see if you feel I would be a good fit for you. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with 13 years' experience working in community, residential, and juvenile settings. I specialize in working with teens/adults experiencing difficulties with stress/crisis, as well as concerns related to anxiety, emotional disturbance, substance use, self-harm, history of trauma/abuse, and legal system involvement. I believe in working collaboratively with clients on what they would like to focus on. Therapy is strength-based, reflective, supportive, and nonjudgmental. My approach is humanistic/client centered, and I also use cognitive behavioral, skill building, mindfulness, motivational interviewing approaches, as well as spiritual/creative practices.
